If the word “refurbished” doesn’t scare you, Back Market is an ideal spot to land excellent deals on Apple products, high-end headphones and other tech gear that might be out of your normal budget.

The Paris-based site launched in the U.S. in 2018, offering refurbished smartphones and tablets at seriously reduced prices. The site partners with an array of refurbishing operators (170+) and centralizes the buying and selling of the used tech goods.

Right now the site’s best deal is for Sony’s popular WH-1000XM3 wireless ANC headphones, now at a 42% discount and close to the lowest price we’ve ever seen (and certainly less than the $250-$340 range they usually retail for).

This is an over-ear Bluetooth set, featuring noise cancellation, voice activation, intuitive touch controls and 30 hours of battery life. Plus, there’s a free app where you can control ambient sound settings. And CNET rightfully dubbed the WH-1000XM3 their “top noise-canceling headphone” (and it’s certainly in our top 3).

If you’re worried about the refurbished part, don’t. These are listed as “mint” condition, meaning no scratches and an exterior that looks brand new. As well, the cans arrive with a 12-month warranty, free shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
